I had a sense of déjà vu yesterday when I got an e-mail from Google’s AdSense department, informing me that my account has been disabled because it is not in compliance with their terms of service. I’ve had AdSense ads on my blogs for years now and earn several hundred dollars a month from them, […]

In yesterday’s blog I promised to tell you a couple of stories about beautiful Lake Crescent, on the Olympic Peninsula. While the lake is popular with fishermen and boaters, its beauty can also be deadly. Way back on July 3, 1929, a local couple named Russell and Blanch Warren disappeared while driving near the lake.

The Elusive Tailwind

There are some things that we’ve all heard about that we know really don’t exist. Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Sasquatch, men who pick up after themselves, wives who don’t say “I told you so.” But perhaps the most elusive of these folktales is the tail wind. As RVers, we know they just don’t exist. […]

Every year thousands of RVers go to Quartzsite, Arizona to shop the flea markets and RV show, hang out with their friends, and just enjoy the sunshine. And unfortunately, every year a few lose pets to coyotes and other wild animals. One couple I know was complaining recently that for the second year in a […]

After a slow paced morning of checking our favorite blogs, reading and answering e-mails, and relaxing, we picked up Greg and Jan in the early afternoon for a trip up the Apache Trail. State Route 88, the Apache Trail, was built in the early 1900s to carry building materials to the Roosevelt Dam construction project […]

I got an e-mail yesterday from a new RVer who was really rattled after an experience he had on Interstate 40 in northern Arizona a couple of days ago. He told me they were on their way to Las Vegas in their new Class A motorhome and encountered very strong winds east of Holbrook. The […]

Terry has finished proofing the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and today I’ll make the final corrections, and then upload it to our printer’s webserver. This is issue 84, which is our fourteen year anniversary issue. That’s a lot of miles of RV travel! I have some author friends whose output amazes me. Some […]

I didn’t hear the rock band Kansas singing their hit song Dust in the Wind, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a lot of it blowing around the last couple of days. A lot of it! The high winds we had on Monday subsided a little bit yesterday, but there were still plenty of […]

I have wonderful news! Terry’s dad’s surgery was yesterday morning and the doctor said that there was no cancer at all! Up until Friday afternoon they were saying it was cancer, possibly a return of the bladder cancer he had a few years ago. But once they did the surgery they said it was an […]

I am amazed and thrilled by the response to yesterday’s announcement that my newest book, Big Lake Blizzard, had been published on Amazon. Within the first 24 hours it had sold 140 copies and its Amazon Best Sellers Rank was #1,334 Paid in the overall Kindle store, #27 in Books > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense […]
